The Washington Parks and Recreation Commission will host a potluck picnic for residents Saturday at 5 p.m. at the River Walk Pavilion on School Street.

The event honors the town's public safety volunteers, including the Washington Volunteer Fire Department, Washington Volunteer Fire Company Auxiliary, Washington Ambulance Association, and emergency management, as well as others who have volunteered their time during emergency situations.

Hot dogs, hamburgers, and paper products will be provided; residents should bring a dish to share.
